Teamsters of the Week: San Diego Lifeguards

If you're ever lucky enough to visit the beautiful beaches and bays of San Diego, find time to talk to a lifeguard (if they aren't busy rescuing someone). The lifeguards became members of Teamsters Local 911 last year and recently negotiated their first contract. Baywatch this ain't: it takes up to 7 years to become a permanent lifeguard and then you have to be selected, SELECTED, to serve. The lifeguards make about 6,000 rescues per year.
